Setup.exe

6 posts in this topic

Guy, I have looked around for the past 2 hours with out any luck. Maybe someone here can help. I have a GUI that has buttons that starts Excel files and JPEGs on other buttons.. How can I get my compiled script and file packaged together so I can give the EXE file to someone. They install it and it would download the files and give them shortcuts and program icons? How can I make my file paths in my script bullet proof where if someone installs the exe file in a location that I did not script them to be. Hope that is clear.

Thanks in advance.

Obone.

FileInstall will allow you to include files in your compiled app, and you can choose where, and even when, those files get placed on the user's computer. You could use things like @tempdir or @desktop to make placement easy, or specify where yourself.

Ok .. I did the build from tools.. I dont think that did anything.. let me try explaining it again. I have my gui code below. You will notice that 4 of the buttons do not work because the files are not with it. How do I package up associated files and the script to a setup.exe file. I want the user to then run the setup exe file and have everything they need to run this little gui.

If you are asking specifically about the installation program, take a look at install creator.

If you are asking about including the files with your compiled script, FileInstall is the way to go.
